review The Brutal Truth

Newspapers for breakfast As work takes them to Australia Maddie is goaded into a brief seemingly harmless bet with her enigmatic boss where they have to tell the complete truth. There s just something about Lee Winter s writing style that appeals to me Every time I read one of her novels it ends up capturing my full attention and for just a few hours I feel like I m a part of the storyI mean this was a straight up DWP plot rip off in many ways but Winter still managed to make it fresh and enjoyable I could have used a tad bit romance but this was still a great read My next read is seriously going to have to step it up to match this levelSolid 5 stars
